“Richard Ryan journeyed to our ‘Hillside’ regularly over the last fifteen years. The boys and the faculty looked forward to his coming as each visit was unique and focused on very recent issues. I will never forget his visit after the Columbine shootings in his home state of Colorado. His honest, direct, and candid style reached many boys. Despite his short visits, he made a difference in many young men’s lives. Each time he came he addressed the faculty. Whether it was an update on the world of chemical dependency or an overview of our own community’s involvement, his observations were always helpful. I value my personal friendship with Richard very much. I do not know of anyone in his business who does it better.”

(This is a partial list of schools to which Richard Ryan
has provided direct services.)

“I have had the privilege of working with Richard Ryan for two years, and our school could not be more pleased with his exemplary work.  He is highly knowledgeable of the latest trends and best practices, and his direct, open approach works well with parents and students alike.  As an administrator, I also am grateful for the direction his visits have given our drug and alcohol programs school-wide.”

– Jonathan Eades,

Head of Upper School

St. Mary’s Hall, San Antonio, TX

“Our students eagerly await Richard’s visit every year. Richard’s straightforward approach with young people creates strong connections based on trust and respect. He is direct and tells students not just the hard facts about drugs and alcohol, but also the importance of personal decision-making and consequences. He is a dynamic speaker and his stories are powerful and relevant. His remarkable ability to share his experiences in such meaningful and memorable way saves lives. There is no doubt; Richard has made a difference in our community. For our parents and students dealing with the stress of teenage life, Richard is a trusted mentor and friend. By offering teenagers and adults a sense of direction, he gives them hope. He is able to provide a significant shared experience that can connect parents and children and becomes a catalyst for positive change. Richard’s program is one parents, students, and educators cannot afford to miss.”
